Rated 4 out of 5 by DoubleH Love the style...but
I have had my eye on this dress for some time and finally took the plunge when more colours came in. I ordered the teal colour, although I'm pretty sure the one that arrived was the spearmint - it's definitely the greeny one. I don't really mind either way and won't be sending it back, but I do think this issue needs to be checked at the warehouse.
Colour aside, I love everything about the dress - the style, the fit, the length, the sleeves, the print - except for the O So Slim lining, which is driving me crazy! It simply does not stay in place when I walk. It starts out sitting just above my knee, but after a short walk to the local shops had ridden up to just under my bottom. I have heard of other customers cutting the lining out and I think I'm going to join them. The dress fabric is thick enough not to need an underskirt for modesty reasons and the fit and flare shape means I don't really feel the need for a shaper anyway.
I wholeheartedly agree with other reviewers that it's a lovely, flattering dress and am tempted to buy at least one more colour, but please Ouida can we have a version of this dress without the lining?

This is an uber sexy dress! It is a bit tricky to put on as rolling down the inner tube that is the O So Slim' is quite an art. But once you have done that and adjusted your "girls" to maximum effect: Wow!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Maximokit Gorgeous vintage style dress
Ordered this on a whim and so glad I did. It's beautiful and made me feel like a million dollars. I teamed it with some vintage seamed stocking and put my hair in a chignon and went out to a very posh Mayfair restaurant and I felt amazing. Covers a multitude of sins and so flattering. My man kept taking photos of me in it as it was so lovely.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Smarty Pretty dress but smelt bad
This was a lovely dress (though I'm 5'9" & it only came to my knee - please can RN do some longer lengths?) but it smelt awful when I opened the bag. It was a sort of musty, chemical smell. It seemed to be coming from the dress rather than the lining, so I think it was something the fabric has been treated with. It might wash out but I'm not taking the chance & sending it back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by missmoneypenny21 Very flattering dress
This is such a flattering dress in every way. Really lovely. One word of warning, definitely a cold wash on a very short cycle or hand wash as I found the dress I ordered, in navy/white lost some colour although this was slight, the white spots were not as white after one wash which was a 30 degree delicates cycle. I like it so much I have ordered another.

Easy to wear and very flattering. I have 2 and am thinking of ordering another colour. It really shows of the slimmest part of your body.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Shema21 How do you get into this dress!!!
This is such a lovely style of dress and when it arrived I was excited to try it on. However, when I did try and either step into the dress or put it over my head, I just couldn't get past the band around the waist area - there just isn't enough 'stretch'!!! Such a shame as a lovely dress, but will have to send it back. I am a size 10.
